MTTT - University Roadhouse

The October M Thirsty Third Thursday group met last night on the Second Wednesday since the founder and planner of MTTT (me) will be gone for the next two weeks.

This month we visited the University Roadhouse, which is in between Western Michigan University and Kalamazoo College. I have gone there a couple times and it is a very appealing restaurant.

The food came out quite fast. I had the Spinach Chicken Wrap, which I would recommend. Liz had the nachos. Rob had the chicken club. I can't remember what the rest of the group had. Our server was okay. When I first arrived and sat down with Cheryl, I had to go find out if we even had a waitress. But after that she was very attentive. Prices are reasonable. The drink special was Margaritas for $3.00 and this was in a very huge glass. My meal with a couple of drinks was around $15. And the food is presented with a touch of flair and tastes scrumptious.

The University Roadhouse is owned by Chris Housler, who also has partial ownership of most of the Main Street Pub restaurants. The Roadhouse may be close Western Michigan University but is generally not a hangout for students - the average age of diners is 40.

I'd choose University Roadhouse's pub fare over the pub fare at a lot of other restaurants in town.
